In the galleries, students encounter Audio-Animatronics, a technology first invented by WED Enterprises during the early 1960s. As a forerunner to contemporary robotics, the Audio-Animatronics technology inspires students to apply critical thinking skills during this hands-on workshop. In teams, students become Imagineers and are challenged to navigate complicated paths using block computer programming. Together, they control Sphero SPRK robots for speed, travel duration, and precise angle of trajectory.
